Hi there! so I own 2 bearded dragons. take care of 3. 2 of which we got on Saturday. they've been eating but the new female doesn't eat much and she's really small so I'm worried. I dust one of the feedings with calcium powder with d3 in it a day. But I was thinking of getting bee pollen powder as well to make them eat more salad and crickets (we're getting dubias soon) but are there any other powders I should get? and what brand of bee pollen is good?

You've only had her for 2 days at this point? Was she generally healthy before you got her? They will go through relocation stress, its not uncommon for them to not eat or not eat much during that time.

Is the female housed with another dragon or is she in her own enclosure?

shes in her own enclosure :) they are in 20 gallons but we are getting new ones ASAP. I don't know too much about how healthy she was before as it seemed she was bigger in pictures. and yes we've had her for two days :)

That was my first thought also.

To answer the question, assuming you have good UVB you can get some calcium without d3 as well and alternate. I would stick with more d3 for babies, maybe 5 times a week with and twice without, and as they get older and/or healthier, you can start flipping that. The other powder I would recommend besides the bee pollen would be a multivitamin. Personally I like Repcal Herptivite because it uses beta carotene instead of synthetic vitamin A supplement so no risk of vitamin A overdose. That can be given probably 2-3 times a week as well. For bee pollen, I ordered mine from Amazon. It's the BioDude brand one and my guy likes it, but you can also check health food stores or if you know any beekeepers locally.

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
